The Consequences of a Felony Conviction
A felony is the highest level of crime you can be charged with. Anytime you’re being charged with a felony, your maximum punishment if convicted will be more than a year of imprisonment for each charge.
A felony conviction will also result in other consequences unrelated to being imprisoned. If you are convicted of a felony, you will no longer be able to:
– Own or possess a firearm
– Participate in jury service
– Hold public office position
Depending on the crime, a felony conviction can also result in a registration requirement to certain registries including:
– Sex Offender
– Drug Offender
There may also be immigration consequences if convicted of a felony.
Some crimes may be reduced to a misdemeanor, which will lighten your maximum possible sentence and will allow you to keep such rights as possessing a firearm.
